This beautiful lustrous India black '65 is in excellent and as far as I can tell, totally undamaged condition. The '65 was a variation on the '61 with an open cropped nib replacing the tubular hooded nib of the '61. Both cap and barrel have a lovely clear grey "jewel" held in with chrome plated tassies. The cap is made from Lustraloy and is delicately and beautifully frosted, making this the "Classic" model. The chrome plated pocket clip has a long arrow "flight", again in the Parker 61 style. The barrel unscrews to allow the fitting of a standard Parker ink cartridge or you can use a standard Parker ink converter (not included). The nib is shiny and undamaged with lots of iridium and in 14 carat gold. It is in a medium point.
I have fully serviced this pen. I did just dip the tip of the nib to test it. The nib is very smooth and lays down a wet and medium width line.
A lovely pen.
